John, you need to do one of those low light Ghia's up rally style. Plexi windshield, mesh curtains, and taped head lights. A 36hp Orsaka like the Pre A had. BBOE II is already a proven tow vehicle. Tow to the start and use the bus as a chase vehicle throughout the race. You'd need a driver in the chase bus/coffee station (long list of volunteers to chose from). :-k :-k :-k
Let me draw you a fucking picture!

I think you should include 40hp too. Or anything single port?

I think limiting it to single port is a fantastic idea.

I'm trying to get the inaugural run going this summer....just to get the ball rolling and build some enthusiasm, but that'll give the community a full year to build some truly epic stuff for the future and a year to tweak the event format if needed

Here ya go John, this is on the local CL here, I think he has a roof section and driver side door for it, good start for a racer Ghia \:D/ Maybe Scott Hall could haul it out to ya when he picks up that bay westy?

^^Dang! A 55 ghia! We have some good parts to build that. Looks like it may have decent heater channels too.

Man that's a rare bird I'd love to see it up close, what a awesome car

If you have some of the parts for it that would be a rad vintage road racer !!!!!!

And they are such a easy car to assemble :^o :^o :^o
